Review:
What a brilliant and beautiful book, a look at the person of Mary in depth and detail that will make a phenomenally different study for churches or individuals that maybe have thought Mary was not so relevant to their traditions or gospel.
Andrew Jones though addresses this and highlights the relevance of Mary for all traditions by not only looking at what the Gospels do, and don't, say about her, but by also holding her up in light of other gospel occurences such as the transfiguration and then reflecting that back to our here and now too and looking at how she is a witness to discipleship and a beacon of liberation.
A very easy to read but detailed book that includes group study or personal reflection question too.
